Gates of Neverdeath by RalphHorsley Gates of Neverdeath by RalphHorsley
Gates of Neverdeath

Dungeons & Dragons cover artwork.
WOTC; D&D.

Acrylics, Approx 34" x 31"
Original artwork for sale.

"The Necromancer held the mighty crown aloft, with it's powers and his undead army he swore he'd be unstoppable..."

I have written an entry on my blog [link] detailing the creation of this painting, including preparatory sketches and the cover mockup.

I was asked to create an image that placed the viewer at the heart of the piece - as if they were being actively engaged by the undead. I chose a low viewpoint and forced perspective to emphasise the central viewing position as the focus of the piece.

In addition the majority of the painting has a limited palette, meaning that the Necromancer's red robes really pop and bring him into sharp focus.
